The Jesus and Mary Chain Say They ‘Will Get It Together’ and Make New Album

The Jesus and Mary Chain, New Album

The Jesus and Mary Chain appear to be making nice again. A recap: The band broke up in 1999 when brothers Jim and William Reid couldn’t get along, but they toured in 2007 and they’re going on a big tour this year to celebrate Psychocandy’s 30th anniversary. Now it seems they might be in a music-making mood. In an interview with NME, Jim Reid said that the band was mending fences and heading in a good direction. “We are kind of coming round to being in agreement, which is a bit weird for us,” he said. “There will be an album — we will get it together. I’m more convinced now than I ever have been that there will be a new Mary Chain album.”

It’s certainly not confirmation, but it’s a promising sign! Read the whole interview at NME.
